Perfect except for Mosquitos. Be prepared with hats and coverings. Good early show for families begins at 8:30. Cash only at the gate a bit of a surprise. Still, a vintage drive in a treasure and a treat. Check it out. Fun evening take-in if camping in the area.

This spot was a great find! Took out 8y old to see Mission Impossible #5 and had a blast. Drinks are included in $10 ticket ($7 for kids I think), and you can pack your own treats or buy there. TAKE bug spray. I even saw some with mosquito netting to place in care windows - SMART! We started off... More

We had a wonderful time at the drive in. The retro music and front 'stage' was a really nice touch. We brought blankets and took advantage of some of the beach chairs and watched the first movie outside. They make the best grape cotton candy.

I love drive-ins and with the one back home getting closed down this was a welcomed sight. Food was reasonably priced, great movie combo and it was awesome that a free drink came with an admission. I love the old tunes, the classic intermission and the atmosphere. Will definitely be back!!

I found it pricey ($33) compared to the drive-in in Cape Breton ($14/car), but it makes for a fun, family night out, and I supposed you'd be hard pressed to find something else to do for such little money. The concession food was reasonably priced, as well.

The Backley Drive In is a great place to watch a movie (or 2!). Every summer we take our kids a couple times. This year it was Minions & Jurassic World! There's a few bugs in the area, but otherwise everything is great! Get there early if you don't want to miss the show.

What can you say a DRIVE IN! It was a great night fun for everyone. But bring you bug spray and do not forget the movie starts late!

Our family is the type that visits a lot of attractions and does a lot of things together. Our evening watching a film at Brackley Drive In was one of the best times we have ever had together. They do a really good job of taking you back in time. The price is comparable to what you would pay to... More

Great screen, good food, clean bathrooms, plenty of room up front to sit near the screen if you don't want to sit at your car. A playground for kids, don't miss it!
